With new stories, as well as those previously published by venues as diverse as “Mad Swirl”, “Queer SciFi”, “Anti-Heroin Chic”, and literary journals published by academic institutions such as the University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley, this collection contains thirteen selections of short fiction, from 300 to 5000 words each.
Covington brings an unapologetic, bold, bisexual, voice back to the canon of beat-inspired literature and adds a twist of feminist kink. His subject matter remains true to the themes often explored in his poetry; character studies of people you wouldn’t look at twice, should you pass on the street, even as they live life in ways that celebrate freedoms and self-liberation that are rarely achieved by those surviving around them. There are dark corners and shadows as well, and he takes us there, too; but always allows hope for redemption, restoration, and regeneration.
From the streets of North Beach to the Santa Fe Plaza, and from the desperation of small-town Texas to swanky Havana hotels, PW Covington takes readers on a fast-paced, often kink-infused, cerebral, exploration of indelible things that lurk just below the surface of the seemingly mundane.
